Mourning the Victims of the Quebec Mosque Attack (16 photos)

in Photo Nerd by

On January 29, 2017, six people were killed and eight more injured after a gunman opened fire at the Islamic Cultural Centre in Quebec City, as members were gathering for Sunday evening prayers. The alleged attacker, a 27-year-old student from Quebec with reportedly extreme right-wing and anti-immigrant views, was captured and has been charged with six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder. Over the weekend, members of Quebec’s Muslim community were joined by government officials, members of neighboring synagogues and churches, and thousands of other Canadian citizens as they mourned the dead, comforted the families and survivors, created memorials in the streets, and came together in public demonstrations of unity.

Making Maui’s Hook From Disney’s “Moana”

Texas-based artist Bobby Duke has made a magical fish hook that can slow down the sun, pull islands out of the sea, and battle monsters. His home-made wooden replica of Maui’s hook from Disney’s “Moana” looks just like the original Polynesian one! The best part? It glows in the dark as well! Unfortunately, Bobby can’t sell this hook or others like it, because Disney owns its design.

Rancho Mirage

in Design Nerd by

A stylish, new mid mod pays homage to the oh so cool Palm Springs vibe. Built on Frank Sinatra’s old estate there’s even a cheeky tribute to ol’ blue eyes himself. I’m seriously envious of this weekend getaway. Would you want to leave? Rancho Mirage by Newport Beach based interior designer Brittany Stiles.

A Visit to the European Southern Observatory (26 photos)

in Photo Nerd by

High in northern Chile’s Atacama Desert, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) has built several collections of telescopes and observatories on remote, arid mountaintops. The locations are ideal for ground-based astronomy — far from city lights, high above sea level, with more than 350 cloudless days a year. The ESO is an intergovernmental research organization with 15 member states, founded in 1962. It has been making observations from the southern hemisphere since 1966, and continues to expand its facilities to this day. The sites are La Silla, which hosts the New Technology Telescope (NTT); Paranal, home to the Very Large Telescope (VLT); and Llano de Chajnantor, which hosts the APEX submillimeter telescope and the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). Construction on the newest project in Chile’s desert—the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT), a 40-meter-class telescope—began in 2014. The E-ELT is scheduled to come online in  2024. Here are some recent images of the ESO’s observatories, the surrounding landscape, and a few of the astronomical images they’ve taken.

Scandinavian-style guest house in Poland

in Design Nerd by

If modern minimalism is something you’re into, which I am because sometimes I just need something that is easy on the eye, then I think you’ll dig this guest house in Chociwle, Poland designed by Loft Kolasiński. With a Scandinavian, mid-century feel this dwelling is a tad masculine, a touch funky and a smidge hip. What a cool collection of furnishings from the 30’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s from Italy, France, the Netherlands, Czech Republic and Poland – including a polish HI-Fi stereo from the 80’s. I want those sofas soooo badly. (Photos: Karolina Bąk

I Made A Ring Out Of The Metal Plate From My Surgery

in Design Nerd by

My longest (and most painful) project is finally finished!


Show Full Text
It was my first ski of the season in 2015, so I decided to celebrate by doing a flip. Shortly after, I was admitted to hospital with a broken collarbone and four fractured ribs. Not my finest work.

Three days later I was discharged, with a scar and some x-rays. The metal plate would hold my collarbone together while it healed, for the next year. Hospitals usually throw away the metalwork from surgeries like this, but I asked the surgeon to keep mine so that I could turn it into something. Scroll down to see the results!

A town house in Ho Chi Minh City

in Design Nerd by

Only 4m wide and 17m deep this contemporary concrete and brick house rises above a busy street in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The minimalist, modern home references the traditional shop houses of the area with a blurring of private and public spaces at street level achieved by a folding shutter which also moderates shade and ventilation. A large central skylight allows light to penetrate to the inner rooms. By MM++ Architects.

People Are Obsessed With This 22-Year-Old Guy Who Had A Bob Ross Birthday Party

in Design Nerd by

Do you have a birthday coming up? Wondering what to do for it? Well Chris Nervegna from South River, New Jersey just came up with a great idea. He and his friends had a Bob Ross-themed party for his 22nd birthday, and now we all want one!


Show Full Text

For those of you who don’t know, Bob Ross was an American landscape painter and art instructor best known for his instructional TV program called The Joy of Painting (oh, and he was also pretty famous for his awesome permed afro too). He still has a massive fan-base but it seems like Chris took it to the next level entirely.

He and his friends bought paint, brushes, and canvases, and gathered around the TV so they could paint along to one of Bob’s episodes. Chris, who’s a graphic design student at Kean University and who even has his own brand of clothing, told Bored Panda, “I am in no way an artist when it comes to painting, but I am eternally blessed with such a talented group of friends. I can’t say I’ve always been a fan of Bob Ross [but] I stumbled upon his segment on Netflix one day and fell in love with his enthusiasm.” When asked if he had any advice for people planning to have their own Bob Ross party, Chris said, “Don’t get discouraged if your painting is turning out horrible. All of ours were! If things start to get complicated, go in your own direction! It’s your own painting, have fun with it!”

Chris posted pictures of his party on Twitter and they’ve since been shared more than 32k times and liked by over 108k people. “BEST. DAY. EVER.” he wrote, and we believe him. Just don’t forget to invite us next time!

The Rifts by Marc Adamus

The Rifts by Marc Adamus

Dark background all the way here, folks! Thanks. We’ve gotten some tremendous lenticular waves here in the Rockies over the last month or so. I’ve been trying to put these elements together for a long while, the wind, ice and big sky but there’s been several issues. The biggest one, great ice on one of the eastern-most lakes that runs north/south has been lacking, and that’s exactly where the lenticulars happen. That’s right where I was here, looking North. I tried to put the sky and the ice together with some blowing snow too, although the effect of the later may be debatable here since it’s really and ice and sky shot. There was way better blowing snow and foregrounds I will post from here later on too, and even better ice bubbles than anywhere on Abraham on one of the lakes, albeit those do not have lenticular clouds… Anyone ever play Rifts? 80’s/90’s SciFi RPG 1/15 second, 14mm, D810. http://www.marcadamus.com/photo/lenticular-show/ These were the craziest lenticulars I ever got to shoot, but I’ve SEEN them a dozen times better than this even. And this was BEFORE dehaze in RAW, ha!
